Â 04/23/13 The Mayorâ€™s Youth Council will be leading a Founders Day / Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday April 27, 2013 at 10:00 AM.Â The event will be held at Founders Park and will commemorate Plymouthâ€™s 140th Anniversary and, hopefully, it can be an annual event leading up to our Sesquicentennial year in 2023. Â Â Plymouth became a City on April 25, 1883.
The council will also be planting a Syacamore Tree in Founders Park donated by NISPSCO.Â Founders Park is on Polk Street north of East Jefferson behind Milaâ€™s and The Coffee Lodge.Â New street signs marking all three of Plymouthâ€™s founders (James Blair, John Sering and William Polk) will be reposted as well.
The Youth Council will be reciting short bios of the three founders and a history of Plymouth.Â
The Youth Council is excited about their project and look forward to a great response from our community!
